Step 6: Check Trade-In Value

Going to trade-in your car? A lot of people don’t get the full value of their trade-in. This can happen for many reasons. This step helps you find the fair market value for your car.


Here is how to ensure you get a good deal on your trade in: First, go to eBay Motors and search for the car you intend to trade-in. Filter your search by CAR YEAR and 100-MILE RADIUS FROM ZIP code. Browse these values. Cars with similar miles near your home is the going market rate. Now, the dealer will want to make a profit on your trade-in. They also have costs associated with inspecting the trade-in and getting it ready for sale. YOUR TRADE: Try to get within $1,000 of the values you find on eBay Motors.
